By Shivangi Singh:

Our Home Minister definitely guards his manners well. Why else would he add the salutation ‘Shri’ to 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed’s name? This just had to be a Twitter trend! Here’s a sneak-peek into some of the tweets:


@mishrashiv– “ABP News; “Shinde calls Hafiz Saeed as ‘Shri’ Hafiz Saeed.” Likely future headline; “Shinde calls Hafiz Saeed as Shri Shri Hafiz Saeed.””

@Ohfakenews– “Sushil Kumar Shinde has been misquoted. He actually wanted to say Padma Shri Hafiz Saeed ji Maharaj.”

@_GheTa– “Waah vote-bank politics! Shree Hafiz Saeed? The Home-Minister has lost it completely.”

Hit television show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ remained trending after a special episode. Here are a few tweets:

@thesudhir– “No matter how old I get #kbc is still an entertainer after all these years”

@pranavkale120“That awkward moment, when Ram Kapoor becomes sad after realising that 50:50 is not a biscuit #kbc”

Madhavan Narayanan– “Today @SrBachchan is totally rocking it: elegant theatrics, majestic Hindi, spontaneous humour #kbc”

The latest news on Gujrat elections is trending 24*7 on Twitter in these times of election fever. Here are a few reactions for the day:

Dilip Cherian“Wrap up musings.. #Modi’s big advantage #Gujarat has 67 urban seats&another 20-odd semi-urban seats”

Madhu Kishwar-I don’t take firm “for” “against” stand till I’ve looked at issues first hand. I’ll wait till I visit Gujarat to take clear stand on Modi”

Barkha Dutt– “Trolls won’t change my mind.. The political marginalisation ofGujarat’s Muslims, ignored by BJP, abandoned by Congress is depressing”
